Hello once again everyone and welcome back to yet another theory for your entertainment. This time I shall be discussing pretty much everything about the Ancient Kingdom and the D clan.
Oda said that in the real world, Luffy would be Brazilian. Its safe to assume that Garp and Dragon are Brazilian as well and since Roger is so similar to Luffy, he is Brazilian also. I think its safe to say that East Blue represents Brazil.
East Blue is based off South America. In fact, the Ancient Kingdom itself is based off a kingdom in South America. Before that however…..
Obviously its a map of the world and South America is in the western hemisphere, but guess what? For Japan, they use the pacific world map.
This places South America in the East.
Also, did any of you know that the Americas(North and South America) was referred to as the ‘New World‘ by the Europeans(Europe, Africa and Asia was known as the old world)?
And finally, lets uses a OP world map and compare it to the pacific world map.
Everything seems to align right?
-Europe, Asia and Africa is more so the “New World” of One Piece.
-The New World of OP lines up with the western hemisphere where the New World is located in real life.
-North Blue usually have people who are wealthy and European and it just so happens to line up with Europe.
Wait…….East Blue lines up with North America and not South America….
Well that is true but it doesn’t make much of a difference since its called the Americas….ok that is pretty vague but there is more to it and I’ll get to it later so lets return our focus to the maps.
For the OP map, you see where Raftel is located?
Overlap it with the pacific world map, Raftel would be located somewhere near Indonesia. This is a huge coincidence because there was a kingdom in Indonesia called Jayabaya, which had a prosperous king named ‘Joyoboyo’.
Remember Joy Boy? The name is obvious but Joyoboyo was known as a just and prosperous ruler who not only was believed to the reincarnation of the Hindu god Vishnu, but sought to restore justice, social order and harmony to the world.
Its too big to be a coincidence…..the Ancient Kingdom draws alot of inspiration from Jayabaya and its in the New World and at the very least, near Raftel.
Also, Jayabaya was a Hindu kingdom and the Ancient weapons has alot of similarities to Hindu gods.
The Ancient Kingdom is pretty much located in the center of the world.
Now then, South America was called the ‘New World’ and was speculated to have lots of mythical creatures and civilizations. The Spanish Inquisition(Marijoies) of South America(Ancient Kingdom) was the central point of the Age of Discovery. Cities of gold, to giants, to valleys of cinnamon and to the Andes mines filled with Gold, Sliver and Copper.
The Ancient Kingdom draws inspiration from the Inca Empire in South America.
The Symbol of the Inca Empire.
The symbol of the sun?
The Flag of the Sun Pirates(Fisher Tiger and Jinbe) who sought equality.
The Inca Empire was also a kingdom of natives.
Monkey D. Dragon strongly resembles a native with his tattoo and widow’s peak.
Bartholomew Kuma draws reference from Ninomiya Sontoku and Bishop Bartholome de las Casas, the latter being known as the “Defender of the Indians“.
You could say that Monkey D. Dragon is the new Sapa Inca trying to get back his land.
The king of the Inca Empire, the Sapa Inca, was killed by Fransisco Pizarro, a Spanish Conquistador. Pizarro?
The Pizarro family(the Europeans in general) lead many expeditions throughout South America in search of wealth and conquering Peru, that was in the hands of the Inca Empire. Hold it…aren’t the BB pirates on their way to Baltigo? Coincidence?
Now that we have the AK location established, I think its time to say that the ‘D’ clan are NOT blood related…..well mostly at least…..
Its called the Ancient KINGDOM. A kingdom is usually a gathering of different families and societies to make up one huge nation. The Ancient Kingdom are like the SH pirates; one big, happy family without blood relation. Anyone who joins the kingdom is a beloved nakama and inherited the name ‘D’ as proof. Luffy and Law may both be ‘Ds’, but they probably share no blood relation whatsoever.
However, this kept bothering me.
The Tenryubitto know about ‘D’ so its not like that middle initial is some sort of secret codename. Even more strange…..WHY HASN’T THE TENRYUBITTO INITIATE SOME KIND OF ‘D’ GENOCIDE!!!?? GO FRIEZA ON THEM!!
If ‘D’ is that dangerous, why aren’t they taking any special precautions against them in today’s age?
“That name has become too exposed…”
“I’m not supposed to tell anyone my full name….”
It seems that for centuries, the name ‘D’ has been under the radar. When the AK were defeated by the 20 Kingdoms, they were wiped out to near extinction and the survivors scattered throughout the world. Its pretty safe to assume that for at least a while after the war, those with ‘D’ in their name were captured and/or slaughtered so survivors kept their whole names hidden while others discarded the name all together for safety.
So….either a member ‘D’ stops talking about the name or discard the name all together and eventually, the meaning of ‘D’ would be lost in history. The Tenryubitto and the WG could not go on a killing spree because if they did, the people would grow suspicious and would try to learn the meaning of ‘D’, putting the their rule in grave danger. It is best to keep the name as hidden and low key as possible.
Eventually, someone who bore the name ‘D’ would prove to be almost unstoppable and pose a huge threat to the rule of the Tenryubitto:
And the reason Gol D. Roger became such a threat is because of this:
The Voice of All Thing is a form of haki that allows the user to understand every living creature. The meaning of ‘D’ may be unknown now but the answers lie in the Poneglyphs and in the creatures that existed during the Void Century.
The first user of this ability was Joyboy using the Ancient Weapon Uranus. Not only that, it is because of Uranus that haki and DFs exist. Don’t you find it strange that haki can be embedded over DFs and a form of haki(CoA) can counter logias? Some DFs can counter haki like Absalom’s Clear Clear Fruit(The Kidd Alliance nor Doflamingo noticed Absa while he using his fruit.)
Those with the Conqueror’s Haki has a lineage that traces back to a family in the Ancient Kingdom, but only a DIRECT descendant of Joyboy can hear the voice of all things.
Since Luffy can hear the voice of all things, shouldn’t one of his parents have it too?
Either Dragon or his wife could/can hear the Voice of All Things as well.
